Ingredients

1

1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
3/4
cup chopped cooked crabmeat

Expert Tips

Ground red pepper, or cayenne pepper, nicely spices these wontons. Add more, if you like.

Cans or foil pouches of crabmeat found near the seafood department are usually of better quality and have better flavor than cans in the canned meat and seafood section. However, any can be used.
